Check out Ali’s amazing session! She and her mom put some thought into things and we were able to incorporate some favorite things into her shoot. I love getting to include items that are personal or tell a story through the photos without making it cheezy! Ali has been longboarding for years and so it seemed natural to include that in her shoot. LOVED the different looks we did for hair. Oh, which reminds me…. all of my senior girls have the option to add on-location hair and makeup to their sessions. My custom artist not only comes to your home to the original hair and makeup (HMU), but also tags along on-set and changes your look with every outfit. Pretty cool…. always makes me wish I was a HS senior again!
After a little thinking, I came up with a location that I felt like could meet all of her “wants” for her shoot…. water, longboarding, her camera, and the drama of her prom gown at the end. Ali is an artist herself, so whenever I hear that, it always makes me wanna push things a little further than I might otherwise.
In this case, that meant pushing things into the dark. It was literally like so dark at the end, that all the cars passing by had headlights on. We were around this pond and long grass and I just knew a big nasty snake was going to crawl across my foot or something. Anyway, along with dark comes cool silhouettes…. and just kinda a more hazy editing look that I had fun with!
Enough from me… enjoy Ali! Oh, and she’s off to Baylor this fall (Sic’em!)
